This is a beautiful houseboat and location on the Nageen lake is pristine, quiet and away from overcrowded Dal lake. Service was excellent, Riyaz, Pervez and their manager, Ishaq took good care of us and dinner was excellent and home-made. This stay was at the end of our trip and we had no idea that carpet and shawl sale would be part of the stay. However, the owner Shaboor bhai was incredibly gracious and his collections are truly noteworthy. We bought a pashmina elsewhere and he praised the shawl, nevertheless. Some minor issues: the beds were harder than we are used to. Additionally, it will be useful to have a menu for dinner so one knows the cost of the entrees before ordering. Small leak near bathtub. Despite this, we recommend this unique experience for a family. Its a houseboat, don't expect the same as a hotel!

Many tourists prefer staying in the busy Dal Lake when we chose to stay at the peaceful and quiet adjoining Nagin Lake which has better views of sunrise and sunsets and beautiful houseboats in the vicinity.

WelcomHeritage has approx 6 houseboats next to each other and we were allotted the first one which was absolutely well kept and maintained compared to the other non branded/ standard ones in the area. The staff is simply incredible along with the cook, caretakers who took care of all our needs in the middle of the night as well. They were extremely friendly and cooperative and also the manager came twice on check in and check out to greet us and give us some tips and suggestions on the area.

Its a beautiful shikara ride around this houseboat for 1-2 hours and you can be at peace of mind with nothing to worry about when at this houseboat. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious. The living room has some incredible carved windows and doors and unique heating systems. The bathrooms are sparkling clean and spacious with bathtub and has geysers for constant hot water. You feel at home when served the amazing tasteful made from the heart ghar ka khana after staying in various hotels across Kashmir.

The warmth of the staff, the food, the coziness and the views will definitely take me back to this houseboat once again. A must stay!

Experiencing a stay in this houseboat is a must in Srinagar. This houseboat is on the Nigeen Lake which is very quiet and serene. Transfer to the houseboat is generally by a shikara but if the winds are too strong there is a back entry by road. We were booked for 2 nights in houseboat 2 and had the best experience.
The houseboats are traditionally furnished with Kashmiri art and craft. It had 4 deluxe rooms and 1 suite at the top level.
The rooms were well maintained, comfortable and had a heater, cooler and pedestal fan. The bathroom was spic and span with good quality toiletries.
Each houseboat has a dining room, sitting room and outdoor deck that is shared with other travellers on the same houseboat.
We spent a lot of time on the outer deck gazing at the beautiful mountains and shikaras passing by.
The caretakers Riyaz and Ashraf did a fabulous job of caring for us.
Food is always home cooked style and all non-veg, veg and Jain options were available to the various guests.
Breakfast and dinner was served on time. If you want to plan for lunch then better to head out or order for snacks at the houseboat.
The owners also have a workshop next door which you can visit for Kashmiri shawls and carpets.

We stayed the WelcomGurkha house boat with friends after a 6 day trek. We chose Nigeen lake as its a more peaceful spot compared to Dal lake with some serene views. We booked Gurkha houseboats based on some reviews and recommendations. It turned out to be a perfect decision i would say.
Right from when we landed on the Houseboat and during our entire stay, the care and hospitality shown by Mr. Ishaq and team was exceptional. The soft spoken Golaji, our caretaker, made sure to take care of us and every request from us with a smile, while serving some really lip-smacking food. The weather was a bit hot but the comfort and cleanliness of the Houseboat made up for it and the team ensured we had adequate fans and coolers before nightfall, for a comfortable sleep. It was a perfect day to relax and unwind after a gruelling trek, watch the lake and mountains in peace and the enjoy a quiet shikar ride.
To top it all, when we informed Mr. Ishaq that my in-laws were coming the week after, he offered to upgrade their room to the premium suite. They were thrilled during their visit and couldn't stop gushing about all the pampering and hospitality. Thank you Mr. Ishaq and Golaji for being such amazing hosts and making the stay so memorable. Would recommend Gurkha houseboats as a top choice to anyone looking for a peaceful stay and top notch service.

The boat house was well maintained with hygienic food followed by all covid protocols. It was my pleasure to stay at the boat. The support staff were very helpful to take care of all ur needs.

Location of the boat house at Nigeen lake away from the rush and sound of Dal lake adds another point to it. Overall a fantastic location, food, ambience, staff. Please sustain the same, until my next visit. 😀

We were booked for 2 nights stay on Gurkha Houseboat situated at Nigeen Lake. The Houseboat were on the other side of the river. There were shikaras over there. When we mentioned Gurkha houseboat we were immediately made to sit on a shikara which was associated with the houseboat. The transfers to and fro by the shikara are part of the package.

We were immediately taken to Houseboat No.4 We were welcomed by Mr. Maqbool the Head Caretaker of the houseboat No.4. We were offered kahwa tea with cookies as wecome drink . As we were there for 2 nights we were upgraded to the suite on top of the houseboat which also had an open deck. The houseboat has 4 deluxe rooms at the ground level and 1 suite at the top level. The rooms are all spacious well laid out and great royal interiors. They are very neat and clean and very well maintained. The wash rooms are also spacious and well made. All toiletries similair to 5 star hotels were provided. The rooms have been provided with heater, air cooler and pedestal fans. The wooden carvings on the ceilings as well as on the sides are very artistically done. As we had an open deck with majestic view , it made our stay more memorable.

Tea can be asked for on request. Dinner and breakfast served on time. More than adequate items are served and we relished all our meals.

Special thanks to Mr. Maqbool and his two assistants who took special care and made our stay memorable.

Nigeen lake as compared to Dal lake is clean, less crowded and peaceful. An experience of stay on Houseboat not to be missed .

We stayed for two nights at this most beautiful house boat and we're floored by its hospitality and it's location. As we had booked the entire houseboat of 4 rooms it was a treat to get full privacy and the best service possible. Our in house butler service was excellent and very courteous. They embodied the Kashmiri culture of guest before self and made sure we lacked for nothing. Rooms were also comfortable and the food which was included with the stay was sumptuous and lip smacking. Special thanks to the manager ishaq bhai who also helped me arrange for a cake for my anniversary. Wish you guys all the success! And thanks for a most wonderful experience.

First time to Kashmir and first time to Boathouse . . . Have to say it's lovely place and great experience at Welcome Heritage Boat#1 Rayees is a warm and his hospitality is second to none. Being vegetarian, we were sceptical that food may or may not be pure veg but wasn't the case. Amazing dinner + bf spread.

This place is cold so ensure to carry warm clothes and in a group ensure to carry cards or any small board games.

Wifi connectivity is good.

Room is provided with heaters and there plent of warm water for bathing etc.

Overall, great exp and would definitely recommend a stay at the house boat in Srinagar.

if there is anywhere i would stay in srinagar, it is here. though the travel rating is 3 star, the experience is better than 5 star. from the rooms set in traditional kashmiri woodwork to the hospitality, everything was super. in their typical kashmiri style, they welcome you to your 'home' and they mean it. Everyone becomes your family. they spend the first few minutes getting to know your preferences, from food to travel and then they spend the rest of the time meeting each need with a personal touch.
the location is away from the humdrum of picnic parties on the Dal lake so if you want exclusivity , this is where you need to be.
With lots of love to Maqbool chacha, Riyaz bhai and the ever smiling Isaaq, the manager, for giving me an experience of a lifetime.....

Our family had booked the entire houseboat (5 bedrooms) for the weekend and it was an amazing experience. Everything was set up perfectly when we checked in, the tea served with pakoras was everything we needed to kickoff the weekend. The home-cooked dinner was something you’d typically find in a kashmiri household. The staff was extremely courteous and were available to assist whenever we needed them. I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Kashmir spend at least one night in these luxury houseboats. You will be delighted for sure. A big thank you to the Wangnoo family.
